Bernie Sanders Blasts Wall Street ‘Greed’ And ‘Recklessness’ In Labor Day Release

In his Labor Day statement, Sen. Bernie Sanders rails against Wall Street “greed” and “recklessness” that caused the Great Recession. 

“The American people are angry because they see the great middle class of this country collapsing, poverty increasing and the gap between the very rich and everyone else grow wider,” Sanders writes. “They are angry because they see this great country, which so many of our veterans fought for and died for, becoming an oligarchy – a nation where our economic and political life are controlled by a handful of billionaire families.”
